What Is Hash?
Hash is basically a super potent form of marijuana. It is also known as hashish and is made from the resin and trichomes of the marijuana plant. As you should know the resin and the trichomes contain the majority of the psychoactive ingredients found in the marijuana plant. It created by sifting marijuana leaves and buds through screens and then pressing it to create solid or paste-like chunks of compress marijuana trichomes.
Hashish coloration typically varies from light to dark brown and occasionally can be found as purple, yellow, black, green or even red depending on the quality of the marijuana, the strain used, and the method used in preparing the hash.
Hashish is typically consumed by mixing it in with marijuana buds or tobacco, cooked in foods, can be heated in a pipe, water bong, bubbler, vaporizer, in joints and even in foods.
There is a method called hot knives that allows you to smoke hash by pressing it between to red-hot knives which causes smoke to develop from the hash and the smoke is then inhaled.
There are several different methods to smoking hashish due to its consistency, it isn’t always the easiest marijuana product to smoke.
Due to the high concentration of psychoactive chemicals contained in hashish you will get very high. It is much more potent than smoking marijuana buds alone, and as such you shouldn’t only need tiny amounts to achieve an even greater high.
This potency can also be reflected in the price of hashish as high quality hashish can be many more times the price of high quality cannabis buds for less product.
Due to the simplistic nature of making hash – sifting marijuana buds and leaves through a screen and then compressing it – there are several different methods of making hashish: Stocking Hash, Finger Hash, Shoe Hash, Bubble Hash, Iso Hash, Kief Hash.
Depending on the method used you can have very high quality hash that is worth alot of money, or end up with low quality hash that isn’t much better than smoking ditch weed. Ultimately, the quality of marijuana used for the production of hash has the greatest effect on the end product.
Kief is a similar product to hash, but it is not the same thing. Kief is basically the ground up left over dust that is left in your grinder after several grinding and smoking sessions.
It can consist of leafy matter, buds, trichomes and resin. Smoking or mixing kief with joints or blunts can potentate your high and is pretty potent on its own.
